kerry had an eye on the role of being the secretary of state to replace hillary clinton. his name was mentioned back in 2008 for that role as president obama considered who to put in for the cabinet. i think right now some of the conventional wisdom says that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice even though she's embattled over her comments on benghazi, she may be the favorite for that role. so you've got some trial balloons floating around here. we know there are a couple deputies to the secretary of defense who are also being considered for the role. we'll have to wait and see exactly how it plays out. >> all right, brianna keilar, you have a full plate. >> yes. >> thank you very much. >> next hour we'll get reaction to general allen now being tangled in this scandal. nic paton walsh will join us with perspective there. >> and tom fuentes from the fbi will join us to talk about all this. >> then on "starting point," a man whose own sex scandal led to his down fall, former new jersey governor jim mcgreevey. jason chaffetz will way in and debbie wasserman shultz. >> man there is
. neither is your name. obama, 25,000 secession petitions, looks up confederate states on wikipedia. here is the best tweet of the day. if i can find it. well, more or less, the point is people are wondering why are john mccain and lindsey graham flogging susan rice and making a point out of this whole benghazi thing? what's it about? here's what it's all about my friends. the fact that they want scott brown back in the senate. they don't want susan rice to be secretary of state. you know what they want to be secretary of state? john kerry. and we know that you know, this is from anastacia who writes this. these two men are trying to get scott brown back in the senate and trashing susan rice to get kerry as secretary of state. i could not agree more, ans at a sha. the liberals are all afraid if you make john kerry john kerry secretary of state scott brown he's sitting there in his truck in massachusetts, he's got a big fund raising apparatus he's ready to campaign. he has the ground organization ready. and he wi
for the united states. the israeli ambassador to the u.s. is keeping president obama informed of what's taking place. our white house correspondent brianna keilar is at the white house watching all of this unfold. what is the president doing, brianna, about this really dangerous escalation in the region? >> reporter: wolf, officially the white house is condemning the violence. it's urging israel to not have civilian casualties while also walking the line of putting forth its long standing support for israel to defend itself. but behind the scenes there is urgent diplomacy underway. both on the part of president obama and dpoeks here at the white house and also secretary of state hillary clinton. the u.s. obviously doesn't have leverage with hamas, but it does have leverage with some countries that have leverage with hamas. turkey of course, egypt, qatar and because of that president obama today for instance called turkish prime minister to talk about this. two days ago he talked to egyptian president morsi in addition to talking to prime minister netanyahu. and egypt key of course because of i
, beginning with the state department saying it was a terrorist attack. president obama said it was a video. susan rice said the same thing. there is a lot of smoke that should be cleared up. host: ronald kessler, written several pieces about all of this. thank you for being here. the debates over avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff with evan bayh. then we will discuss global reaction to president obama's second term. but first in news update. guest: more on the david petraeus story. the agent that launched the investigation was barred from taking part in the case over the summer because of concerns that he was personally involved in the case. the agent continued to press the matter and relate his concerns to a member of congress. congress returns today and will try to work out how to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. refers to tax increases and spending cuts to defense and domestic problgrams. the issue may not be resolved by year's end. pretty much everyone will be affected if there is no deal. it could throw the economy back into recession and cost no income families about $2,000 more ne
conference at the white house in eight months, president obama raced to the defense of his u.n. ambassador susan rice. republicans vowed to block her from becoming the next secretary of state. >> for them to go after the-up ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> five days after the terror attack in libya, rice went on five sunday talk shows to say the early intelligence suggested that the assault was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-muslim video. >> who in the white house, who was president of the united states, was it one of his people? who was it that gave her talking points that clearly indicateed something for which there was no basis if facts? >> reporter: earlier today, republican senator john mccain joined lindsey graham and kelly ayotte vowing to stop rice's potential nomination as secretary of state. while the president would not speculate about his choice to replace outgoing secretary hillary clinton, he reacted angrily to the republican charges and d
between the white house and the state department. the white house saying well, you know, requests about diplomatic security don't really go through us. that's more through the state department. and then there was tension there and then when obama was asked about it, you know, do you stand with secretary clinton you know yeah the buck stops with me. every time you go into the details it always goes that would have been handled by the intelligence community. that's under investigation. it never -- exactly. >> bill: it's all under investigation. but here is -- i'm saying this with all due respect how big a fraud this is. if i'm in the washington press corps you know this press conference is a lot different than that because i basically say, mr. president, i'm a simple man, you know, i always start it with that to be humble. when did you know about -- president, when did you know about cia cia director petraeus' situation. what day? what hour did you know? if he dose it's under investigation i can't tell you. i go oh phooey phooey. that doesn't impede on any investigation. it's a question b
are in states that voted for president obama in the last election. you see how different the election might have turned out had ohio, florida, nevada, colorado, some of those states gone for mitt romney. they're talking about the economy. they're talking the unemployment rate is 1% lower in those states that have gop governors. louisiana governor bobby jindal yesterday talked about the economy and the success the gop governors are having. >> you look at what other governors are doing to lower their unemployment rates. for example, john kasich in ohio and rick scott in florida, they're improving the private sector economies. republican governors have great experience when they pursue tough policies and tough choices not for austerity sake. it is a prosperity agenda. >> reporter: a lot of people are talking about bobby jindal a rising star and possible candidate in the 2016, gregg. gregg: dan, the presidential raise is probably coming up in this meeting as well, right? >> reporter: it certainly is. there is a lot of hand-wringing, a lot of talk about why the gop, why mitt romney did not win at the
obama the big margin. >> in some parts of rural maine, there are dozens of plaque people who came in to vote but nobody in tune flu them. >> what would that be, the united states of caucasia. >> who is going to give them things? president obama. >> give them extraordinary financial gifts from the gift. >> it's absolutely wrong. i don't think that of that represents where we are as a party and where we're going. >> this picture before you is worth millions of votes. >> i love you women. >> what actually can republicans do to win votes? >> they have to frame their arguments through the prism of the vagina. >> let's get right to our panel. krystal ball is my colleague. michael scherer is white house correspondent for "time" magazine and msnbc contributor goldie taylor is with us, too. krystal, i'm not a gynecologist so i'm not going to look at things through that particular prism. but please tell me what you think of this line from the romney tapes. are you ready for it? >> i'm ready. >> okay. here it is. free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. the man is a g
. then later by a texan. the reports state that the obama administration can decline to respond to a request and that it remains to be seen any type of response or recognition will be given to these petitions. martha: wet weather and falling temperatures are what folks are dealing with right now. that is making a miserable situation even worse for the victims of hurricane sandy this morning. folks lining up since early this morning at a distribution site to try to get their hands on some basic necessities and that's where we find our reporter, jonathan hunt, live in brooklyn, new york, this morning. how are they doing there this morning, jonathan? >> they're doing best they can, frankly, martha. this has become a daily routine for many of these people on coney island. the sun comes up with it the lines start forming. what they're here to pick up and what will be laid out along all these tables over the next few minutes are the very basics, food, water, d on theaning supplies. tables. the line will file around and they will be able to take what they believe they need. they spoke to a couple o
, wolf, state leaders on both sides of the issue are holding their fire to see if president obama -- and keep an eye on the fight over the keystone xl pipeline. it's seen by many as the first test as to which direction president obama wants to go and the administration could issue its decision on whether to let that project move forward here in the next few months. >> that's critically important to a lot of folks out there. >>> next, a new commercial stirring up quite a bit of controversy. ♪ [ male announcer ] you build a reputation by not breaking down. consider the silverado 1500 -- still the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road. and now we've also been recognized for lowest total cost of ownership -- based on important things, like depreciation, fuel, and maintenance costs. and now trade up to get a 2012 chevy silverado all-star edition with a total value of $9,000. from outstanding value to standing the test of time, chevy runs deep. >>> move over, talking baby, tiny lizards. there's a new commercial star in town and it has fur and it flies. here's
, by the name al-qaeda. >> eric: president obama said i said it was terrorism on september 19. he said it was terrorism. >> bob: what is the point? i said it was terrorism on the 11th. >> eric: the state department -- [over talk ] >> andrea: he did say it was terrorism why would cbs steve croft ask him why he didn't say it was terrorism on the first day. why tell the ladies of "the view" it's too soon to tell and univision it's not. jay carney said we never said it was terrorism. they did not say it was terrorism. yesterday at the press conference the president stood at the podium and said now that the eselection over we can get some answers. >> bob: they were prejudging it before the election to make political he hay out of it. >> dana: senator dianne feinstein of california, chairwoman of the intelligence committee wants to know why they weren't informed in a closed door session. about the investigation of f.b.i. in petraeus' personal life. >> greg: dianne feinstein, a right wing republican, right, bob? no no, no. she is a democrat. let me finish my point where you interrupted me whe
in the united states hoped it would, and i think a recognition, and evolution by president obama away from the kind of discussion of nation-building that marked the 2008 campaign where he basically said nation-building is not our mission. and when you make that kind of statement, then it raises the question, how are you going to get beyond the 1% in developments and foreign-aid that paul describes? there was a proposal in washington in 2009, early 2010 to combine the development, diplomacy, and defense budgets together and allow an administration that came up largely between secretary gates and clinton, allow the administration, and the administration to move that money so that your initial instinct was not necessarily trying to be a military solution to every problem. of course it ran up immediately against congressional committees that are responsible for certain budgets. also, just a concern about whether or not that would affect the mix in a way many people, i think in washington were not comfortable with it. the idea died. might be time to bring it back. >> and abel comment on several
an investigation. did the president do nothing? and did he didn't tell president obama, why not? is it time for him to be summoned to testimony. roberto gonzalez joins us. how do we determine that the attorney general of the united states should have told the president there was a federal investigation going on of the c.i.a. director assuming that he did not? >> well, i can't speak to what goes on within this administration. i can tell you this. if bob moehler had come to me and advised me that c.i.a. director was having an affair. i would have notified the president of united states. because it reflects extremely poor judgment. i believe the president would want to know that kind of information. in addition to that. at the time that it apparently holder was aware of this, the investigation as to whether or not there was a security breach, i believe had not been completed. as a result, i think it would have been important for the president and for the information to take appropriate steps to ensure that there would not be any damage done in that security. so you take appropriate steps to respond to
difference. but of course, that is not how you win the presidency in the united states. so what i found was very interesting. the same scenario for the popular vote happen for ohio and florida. the support for obama is bigger in ohio and florida and his winning margin. so you can argue that that vote mattered a lot. if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. so then i looked at one of mitt romney and obama -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama and 22 per mitt romney. quite frankly, it has been about that -- roughly three to one. quite frankly, it has been high all the way through. but what if they split it evenly or romney just got a little bit more? if mitt romney had 151% of the vote, he would've won ohio, florida, and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. in ohio and florida, all you have to do is win a little over one third of the lgbt vote win those states. while i don't think that that suggests that in the way we are now talking about immigration and things that republicans ha
to be the leader of the united states government if that's what he think government comes down to. the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. let's go to david. why would he use words like this. this is the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. this was unscripted. this is the pure romney. >> chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark and when i saw it i couldn't believe it. maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying to it play up to that crowd, that's what they wanted to hear. now when we hear him talk about voters he didn't just say he was bought off, that obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas. so they are the moochers, they are victims who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. so just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying hey don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go to one thoughtful
of 20 states now saying no thank you to state-based marketplaces under obama care. john kasich, rick perry, and scott walker, some of the latest republic governors telling health and human services that they will not allow virtual marketplaces that's where people and small businesses can shop for coverage. in his letter. rick perry says quote it would not be fiscally responsible to put hard-working texans on the financial hook for an unknown amount of money to operate under a system -- a system under rules that have not even been written. mean while two north carolina boys thought they lucked out by taking part in halftime contest at eastern carolina football game. little did they know their prize would be seeing their marine father for the first time in five months. >> we have a very special treat for you as well. today, coming live to us from afghanistan. [cheers] >> oh my gosh. those sweet gunnery sergeant josh ricker is a 12 year service veteran and has been serving in afghanistan. his kids did not think that he would be home until christmas. >> that's beautiful. those are your h
at the monastery where a monk gave the president and secretary of state hillary clinton a tour of the monastery and the president told the monk that the united states could use some prayers right now to avoid the fiscal cliff. listen here. >> (inaudible) >> president obama also met with the king of thailand overnight who is the longest reigning monarch in the world. been in power since 1946. believe it or not, the king of thailand born in massachusetts, as a gift, the president obama gave the king an album with pictures of the all the presidents and first ladies he's met starting with eisenhower and the last page was left blank, we're told so there's a picture of a picture with president obama from this week's trip. and once it's wrapped up in thailand, it's off to burma. no sitting u.s. president has been to burma and their record on human rights is not great, but white house officials say they think that the burmese have taken some positive steps toward democracy lately and their position, the white house's position is that the best way to address any concerns about human rights violations i
a stand against obama care. they are announcing that they will not set up state based marketplaces. governors john kasich, rick perry and scott walker among those telling health and human services they will not allow virtual marketplaces that's where people and small businesses can shop for coverage. in his letter. perry says, quote: it would not be fiscally responsible to put hard working texans on the financial hook for unknown amount of money to operate a system under rules that have not even been written. a total of 20 states have declined to take part. and an oklahoma teen ordered to go to church to avoid prison. last december, tyler allred was drinking and crashed his truck. his friend riding with him died instantly. all red pled guilty to plan slaughter in august and gave a tearful apology in court. instead of jail, the judge sentenced it him to probation and ordered him to go to church every sunday for the next 10 years. interesting punishment. >> check in with rick who is outside with a look at the first alert forecast. hey, rick. >> chilly morning. are you traveling on w
and campaigns to get the electoral votes from your state. how surprised are you by that? >> well, i was very pleased by the result. i was just sorry that it took so long. but to get those 29 electoral votes from florida in president obama's column was a big deal. it was wonderful to have it happen. it felt like that was going to happen toward the end of the campaign. i went to rallies with him in hollywood and orlando and other parts of the state, in tampa, st. petersburg with president clinton. you could feel the passion and the energy on the ground. so the fact that he won it was wonderful. it was a little icing on the cake, like i say, very proud for our president and our florida. >> let's show everybody. the final vote count in florida shows president obama eking out this slim win. 74,000 of vote victory. but it was the second straight time that he carried the state. it has been solidly republican in the past. do you think florida is more blue or purplish nowadays going forward? >> it's sort of a purple-blue, if you will. i think that you're right. in past elections, george bush did very
swing state we decreased obama's margin. i'm sure he went to sheldon edelson and to harold simmons and said put up these millions of dollars, and we can -- he'll win, but we'll decrease his margin. not much of a, not much of a relief, and maybe let's hope that, you know, i don't think cross roads is going to end up being as much of a player two years from now as it was right now. and and i think his reputation has, obviously, taken a hit. i'm ready for questions. >> let me ask you one or two, then we'll head around the table. the impact of the pacs. seeing sort of the limited impact it had for republicans, does it cause you to reassess the possible damage or the impact of citizens united? >> well, if you -- you know, i was thinking this morning, what is the greatest, my greatest surprise in the election was that the pacs had less of a impact tan i feared. and -- than i feared. and what i'd say here is i'm hopeful that maybe it can pave the way for some reform. i think republicans saw it was a mixed blessing both in terms of effectiveness, but sometimes, you know, the pacs, the supe

. barack obama held his first post election press conference despite the fact that they are still counting votes in ohio. seems pretty presumptuous. he went after susan rice. some were trying to block her as secretary of state. >> senator mccain and graham and others want to go after to somebody, they should go after me. for them to go after the u.n ambassador who has nothing to do with ben gay you swree -- benghazi and was making a presentation based on information she had received, the smirk-sherm reputation is outrageous. >> phony outrage. mccain, graham and others do what they say is spreading the white house message and it was not terrorism. and mccain addressed obama's remarks saying he understood the president was not happy with him, but -- >> this president -- this administration has been guilty of caw loss sal incompetence or engaged in a cover up. >> meanwhile, earlier mccain was asked if there is a security threat that exceeded that of the libya attack. >> i say with great respect that is one of the dumbest questions i have ever heard. >> thank god he said it with great respect.
and on "meet the press," a top republican suggests for the first time that president obama may have known about the petraeus affair long before the election. >> i'm not sure the president hasn't -- was not told before election day. the attorney general said that the state -- excuse me, the department of justice did not notify the president. but we don't know if the attorney general -- >> that's new. that's news. the president knew before election day? >> i didn't say that. i said i don't know. >> and governor chris christie brings some jersey attitude to weekend update. >> i do not thank any of the stupid mayors who ignored my evacuation orders, you're idiots! and when you ignore me, it makes you look like a real seth meyers. >> oh come on. >> i'm talking here. >> all right. >> i also do not want to thank the reporters that put themselves in danger. you know, by walking into the middle of the hurricane with their cameras. we don't need you to tell us there's a hurricane. we have windows. >> message delivered. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no cease-fire and at least 30,000 is
confirmed as secretary of state. does this present a problem? do you think they will go forward with it? she was widely considered to be the top possibility? >> it's one of the bigger early fights that obama can face but it could take a step back, not just looking at what happened in benghazi but more broadly at all of libya. what we did going in there. we know rice was one of the major driving forces who said we need to go and drive out gadhafi. if some of the nation building starts to turn ugly over the next year which tends to happen how does that reflect on susan rice's push to get us in there. that's one issue that could come up. >> is this a fight the white house wants to have, major? is john kerry looking like the better candidate now? >> well, that's for the administration to decide and they're getting early signals from republicans that if the president wants to go down this road and nominate ambassador rice, that it's going to be a fight and it's going to be game on and it will take on a very partisan and divided tone, very rapidly, whether the administration wants to do that and m

that their states be allowed to secede from the union on the heels of president obama's re-election. one petition from texas has 70,000 signatures last week. last week by the way texas gop official peter morrison wrote a column asking for a, quote, amicable divorce from what he called the maggots, his words, those who re-elected president obama. we'll hear -- well, how about the texas governor rick perry, by the way, who said this on the issue of secession back in 2009. >> texas is a unique place. when we came in the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that. we got a great union. there's absolutely no reason to dissolve it, but if washington continues to thumb their nose at the american people, you know, who knows what may come out of that. >> first of all, all that nonsengs about texas having the option to leave when it wanted to a inaccurate. governor perry believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it. he also shares the frustrations many americans have with our federal government. now more than ever our count

list or perhaps the front oner for hillary clinton's job. now secretary of state. she has been relatively quiet during barack obama four years until lately. now i think all of our viewers know her because she went on all the sunday talk shows and told us everything that happened in benghazi was linked to this video which we know is not the case. can we ascend into the cabinet into this position in the cabinet given that? >> i think she would have a tough time in a confirmation hearing. a lot of the republicans and democrats have concerns about what happened in benghazi and the situation surround the attack on our consulate that resulted in four americans dying including our ambassador. her comments did not stand the test of credibility in the days after we learned more about what actually happened in benghazi. she has a lot of the questions to answer in a public hearing. john kerry has run for president. he ran to be commander-in-chief. his record has been scrutinize. susan rice does not have a great track record of public exposure of her performance in office and i think she w

. we were all paying attention to the election, re-election of barack obama war is breaking out in the middle east? what, what? >> when did that happen? [laughter] for the last 18 months we've been focused on the united states or the arab spring or iran's nuclear weapons. we've not focused on israel. but israel looks all around its neighborhood, and it says we are beset on every single one of our borders. we are surrounded. we have a syrian war that could threaten to spill over, hezbollah in southern lebanon attacking israel. we have an unstable jordan, we have on our southern border the one thing that we had to keep the peace for the last 40 years, egypt. egypt now has a new government, the muslim brotherhood government. they have said they're going to reconsider that peace agreement they've had for the last 40 years. the sinai peninsula which is a desert, a demilitarized zone between israel and egypt, al-qaeda's set up shop there, so the fact that you now have the egyptian prime minister going to gaza and either trying to broker a deal or if no deal to be had, siding with gaza
to these questions. >> i think you picked up quite rightly the question of the degree to which the united states wants to lead it was seen as a subset of fact, wants to spend the resources that it takes to lead. so you hear this doubt and president obama's own words each time he was gone to give a major speech on afghanistan, the west point speech on the command of the company pulled tight again during presidential debates. he kept saying it's time for nationbuilding at home. what was that tapping into? that was tapping into an emotion you hear the electorate can see in the polls. i'm not saying it's a good thing or bad thing, but americans feel as if we are overinvested abroad. then you look at events to which we feel we are the in the united states, that things are out of control, there isn't enough american power and you have become that much to that, which as any to stay invested as we were in that golden. you just describe between 89 and 99, which is a great unipolar moment. the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is that coming back again. you have to pick your fi

much a purple state. i do not think it is definitely a democratic state. we have to see beyond obama because his candidacy and election were quite unique. to echo what you said about congress, i think we have to find leaders of both parties who are willing to bargain. at the obama's -- i think problem on that, he does not have the iou's to call in. he does not have a lot of arrow's a dent in his quiver to use. but we could use bob dole, those people that solved a long-range picture and not just today. >> excellent. speaking of long-range picture, few people can bring that to the party then the way richard norton smith chan. going back several hundred years. >> oh, gosh.

news from washington that 100 republican house members sent a letter to president obama asking him not to nominate ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state writing in part that she is widely viewed as having willfully or incompetently mislead the public weather benghazi matter. we believe making her the face of foreign policy would greatly undermine your desire to improve the trust of the american people. this is after democratic congress women came out to show their support. >> to batter this woman because they don't feel they have the ability to batter president obama is not something we are going to stand by and watch. we'll not allow a brilliant public servant's record to be mugged, to cut off her consideration to become secretary of state. megyn: here now is the woman you saw moments ago. he will more holmes norton. she is a dell what the representing washington, d.c. thank you for being here. your thoughts. you didn't really touch on the race or gender issue but the other women who were there said this is clear sexism and racism. do you agree wit

, they are burning up the phone lines. that's essentially what the united states is doing. you know, of course, president obama is watching this very closely, but he is being updated by secretary clinton, and i just ran out of the briefing to do the slide shot. the briefing here at the state department. they gave a list, again, of more phone calls. the secretary has been making over the past few days. you know, it includes the prime ministers of basically from israel, egypt, the u.n. secretary general ban ki moon. french foreign minister qatari prime minister, foreign minister, and the turkish foreign minister. you can see what they're doing is tapping the countries that have the most influence. number one would have to be egypt. very, very important. also turkey. you can see the delicate balancing act by the president and secretary clinton is saying the same thing. on the one hand israel has the right to defend itself against these rocket attacks from gaza, but it also has to try to keep this to a minimum and try to bring this as they keep saying de-escalate the situation. suzanne. >> jill, s

states, the u.s. has also been targeting al qaeda. and in fact in december of 2009 the obama administration opened their campaign of bombing attacks against what they believed to be al qaeda targets in yemen. so on december 14, 2009, this is about -- obviously about 11 days before the christmas day attack, secretary of state clinton added al qaeda in the arabian peninsula to the terrorist list, named them an official terrorist organization, and then three days later the u.s. carried out its first attack. so it was in southern yemen and ibrahim mentioned this in his remarks. it was on a village and what the u.s. thought was that there was an al qaeda training camp and they knew some of the operatives who were there and so they had u.s. naval ships off the coast of yemen that fired missiles equipped with cluster bombs into what they believed to be a al qaeda training camp. unfortunately for the u.s., this turned out to be a bedouin village in which several or a few al qaeda members were hiding. there were 55 casualties during the first round i have a tax. so this happened sort
obama in my country and in my house. >> reporter: with him, secretary of state hillary clinton. he said, this is their last official trip together as she plans to leave the state department. >> i could not be more grateful, not only for your service, hillary, but also for the powerful message that you and a aung san suu kyi send. >> reporter: in cambodia, president obama was there for two summits on the focus of trade. very early tuesday morning, cambodia time, president obama spoke with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and got an update on the situation. he also called egypt's president morsi and according to the white house n that call, the president discussed with morsi the importance of getting hamas to stop firing rockets into israel. the president has publicly said he believes this is essential for stability and to get a piece in process. from here, the president will have a partial day of summits in cambodia, mostly focused on trade issues, before flying home in time for thanksgiving. joe? >> that's jessica yellin reporting. now we're going to continue the special editio
think at the central plank of this, is ambassador rice at fault or as barack obama said today, she was merely passing on intelligence and not a key player in all of this, and tlf, if he -- therefore if he wants to make her secretary of state, he can do it. >> well, i was substituting for george stephanopoulos and all of the shows were trying to get hillary clinton to talk about benghazi, but for whatever reason she did not come out, and he put out susan rice. it is interesting that the president said she had nothing to do with benghazi, then why was she on the show? >> didn't she make herself a key player or the person put up by the administration to launch the defense, and she would have said, look, we believe there are a number of possible theories, and that may have been a get-out, but she didn't do it. >> she was a good soldier and did what the administration told her to do and read the talking points. >> did she act in good faith do you believe? >> i can't get inside of her brain, but i believe she was repeating the intelligence and what the white house told her to say, becaus
's an understanding of government that to me renders him unfit to be the leader of the united states government. if that's really what he thinks that government comes down to. because the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this is unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to the that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say yes they were bought off, that obama won the their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign ever big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victim who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what h
obama's foreign policies ahead. he will have to deal with an entirely new team. he came in and put hillary clinton as secretary of state, inherited bob gates and inherited gen. petraeus and put him afghanistan and cia and now he has to fill those positions and see who can help him deal with these challenges. >> bob, as one who has more than a passing acquaintance with scandals, where do you think the so-called libya scandal is now? >> i think there are serious unanswered questions but the suggestion they should have watergate style, independent special committees to investigate this, i don't see that yet because the question seems to be what did susan rice know and when did she know it? which falls not very high on the scale of do we really need to get to the bottom of this? i kind of disagree with chuck. i think we will find out what happened and i think we should. and you never know what this is going to show. but the real issue is libyan policy. you know, what are we going to do with this country that -- we don't know what the future is. and a light footprint might be the answer
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss
, and that is where i think that israel and the united states very much had this sort of camaraderie and even despite the bad blood between netanyahu and our leader president obama, and the countries do maintain a healthy relationship, and you have a lot of american jews who do have dual citizenship as well even today. >> point that out, because the jewish vote is very vital in the country as we watched it play out in the election, and why is that? >> well, listen, first of all, they have a fantastic lobby which is called apac which is american israel political action committee and they do a fantastic job in representing american jews before the congress. there's the one thing with congress that they can -- the one thing they can agree on these days is support for israel and the ability to defend themselves, and in fact, they recently passed unanimously, resolutions in both chambers saying that israel has the right the do so. so the israeli population is at one point 70 years ago was 3.5% of the american population, and today it is around 2% and in apparently something like seven years, seven years,

not by the opponent but by the super pac. we had $100 million spent by the president in nine states, $100 million on the air which is more than what mccain spent in its entirety. >> i think house races had an impact because barack obama, sherrod brown, governors, they had some definition. so that outside spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with. but if you're not known it's going to be an imact about this. there's a term about politics which is the amount of television you buy. it means the average viewer sees the ad 10 times. in this election the republicans super pacs were at 9,000 or 10,000 points. i spent a lot of nights in hotel rooms there. and you turn on to tell vision. it was wall to wall political act and in many of those markets you see two or three ads. there is strong differences on this but we had one individual, one spend 100 million on the presidential direction. one person will try. there will be soul searching on the republican side. it had all this money. i don't think it's going away. but this is a big question in 2016, the democrats and republicans w
